IWRA World Water Congress

    Daegu, Korea

    IWRA organises and supports international water congresses and events related to advancing water resources knowledge, policy and management around the world. Since 1973, IWRA has held a World Water Congress every three years in various locations around the world.

    The objective of the World Water Congress is to provide a meeting place to share experiences, promote discussion, and to present new knowledge, research results and new developments in the field of water sciences around the world. For almost four decades the World Water Congresses have been excellent events for the identification of major global themes concerning the water agenda, and for the bringing together of a large cross-section of stakeholders for the development and implementation of decisions in the field of water.
